Rockin' Ink Stars Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to be part of my very first blog hop!  If you haven't "done" one yet, it's simple - just start here and follow the link at the end of my post to go to the next one.  It's like a round robin so it doesn't matter where you start but if you came here from Terri's blog, you're on the right track!  Here's a list of all the participants just in case a link gets broken or something:

1. Melissa Robsinon,
2. Joy McHargue,
3. Jennifer Kramer,
4. Michelle Brooks,
5. Marianne Hancock,
6.  Terrie Dodd,
7. Caron Barnard,
8. Alexandria Duran,

The Rockin' Ink Stars is the name of the team I am in.  We have a wonderful upline, Michelle Brooks and countless team members.  This is our first team blog hop!  The theme is Spring so pretty much anything goes.  Check out the card I chose:

It's very simple and flat (something I'm not used to doing).  I used the Ariana papers and the lattice overlay design from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  The sentiment is from Joyful Birthday (one of my favorites!).

I also did a bonus card just because.  I'm not sure it shouts Spring but I really liked it so I decided to share it as well.

This one was also created from the Ariana paper pack!  Isn't it amazing how different the two are?  I used two stamp sets here, Perfect Fit-Birthday and  Perfect Fit-Frames.   These are both so easy to use when paired with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.

Here's a close-up shot of the paper rosette.  They're really fun to make and add just the right pop of interest to a card.  

Well, that's it for my first entry!  Hop on over to Alexandria's blog to see what she whipped up for you!

Smiles, Caron

  3. great designs- you did everything right!

  4. I love the Ariana Happy Birthday card! It looks so elegant. How crazy is it that you create two very different looking cards with the same paper packet! Awesome. Thank you for sharing! :)
